This webinar will put a particular spotlight on the role of communication, dissemination and exploitation in maximizing the impact of Horizon 2020 projects. It aims to clarify the terminology by illustrating the differences between the three concepts, and point out the areas they have in common. Participants will also get an overview on key practical steps to take and consider when elaborating a sound outreach and exploitation strategy. In this regard central aspects related to IP and innovation management will be addressed, too, since they are significantly interwoven with the subject. However, please note that this webinar is complementary to other training sessions offered by the team that specifically address exploitation and IP management issues under Horizon 2020.
